If you’re looking to make waves like a rockstar then look no further than the Rockstar 48 inch catamaran, officially licensed by Rockstar Energy.
This powerful RC catamaran comes equipped with a water-cooled Dynamite 26cc gas engine capable of ballistic speeds of over 40 miles per hour.
Control of this killer Rockstar is made possible by the included Spektrum DX2E DSMR 2.4GHz radio system.
Designed for optimum performance on a massive hand-laid, lightweight fibreglass hull the Rockstar 48 inch catamaran comes decorated in distinctive Rockstar Energy graphics and looks amazing on the water.
A boat this big needs some muscle in the steering department and that’s what this boat features. A 1/5-scale servo with over 270 oz.-in. of torque is ready to point this big boat in any direction with authority. The fuel tank is located towards the rear of the boat making it easier to access the fuel cap and to fill it. It’s also easier to remove from this location for maintenance but more importantly is allows for a long run time upwards of 30 plus minutes.
The hull is constructed from hand-laid, reinforced fiberglass where it then goes through a 3-step hull finishing to give it an amazing look.
The hull is painted, water-transfer graphics applied then a clear coat is applied to finish off the resilient finisha similar process that full-scale boats go through.A centrifugal clutch prevents the prop from spinning while the engine is at idle. This keeps your fingers and hands safe while you handle the boat while placing it in or taking it out of the water. It also allows you to easily launch your boat without the need for a second person to toss your boat in the water while you work the throttle on the radio. This is a must on this size boat, but is often not an included feature.
The modern radio tray houses not only the receiver/battery box, but also the throttle and rudder servos. This pioneering convenience eliminates the need for wood used in boat hulls and is easily removable.
